Papasan chair

Growing up in Asia, my home was furnished with rattan made furniture. I like the material and I think it suits the tropical weather very much.
In the past couple of years, we start to see rattan made furniture popping up in the Hungarian market. I am happy to see this variety of material available but somehow I'm just not keen to buy them for our home in Hungary...
Then a week ago, I found this photo and now I'm seriously considering a papasan chair !

Inspiration for the loo

First, she inspires me with her lovely kitchen . Now her loo's update will be going into my inspiration folder.

Our loo is narrow like hers (albeit not as spacious :( ) and I have bought the wainscoting thinking it would be nice for the loo but have not the gut to execute it. With this , I am thinking it would work in our space,too --- am so delighted to have seen this.

Dreaming of reading nook

the cinnamon post eclectic hall
The simplicity is what I like about this space.
Book Nook traditional family room
We have a similar alcove in our living room ; but with closed-up storage. I'll switch to this in a heart beat!
